Introducing L’Autre Côte Cabernet Franc

Cabernet Franc often thrives despite the interventions of the winemaker; it reaches its apotheosis, then, when the winemaker is only (at a distance) watchful, bridegroom to the fizz of fermentation; shepherd to the press, to the barrel, to the blend, to that final shape that twists the tongue, molds the mind, and elevates the mundane to the exotic and the commonplace to the sublime.

L’Autre Côte is the newest brand under The Lineage Collection portfolio. L’Autre Côte is all about the glories of Cabernet Franc and marries the world-class potential of this grape in the Livermore Valley with Steven Kent Mirassou’s varietal obsession.

L’Autre Côte is available now! The first two offerings are extremely limited single-vineyard wines offered as a two-pack. Each two-pack contains one bottle each of 2017 Cabernet Franc – Ghielmetti Vineyard and 2017 Cabernet Franc – Sachau Vineyard. Only 40 cases of each wine were produced in this first vintage, and a maximum of 6 two-packs is available per allocation member. Steven talks about the wines on his podcast and on video.
